Tax Seizure Program

When the California State Police (CSP) and California Highway Patrol (CHP) merged in July 1995, the CHP agreed to continue the Tax Seizure Program and provide the same services the CSP had supplied. The CHP has traditionally provided assistance to allied law enforcement and other state agencies upon request, as directed in the Department's Mission Statement. The tax seizure warrant service is beneficial to many state agencies in their effort to recover unpaid taxes.

The CHP has trained tax seizure officers in numerous locations around the state to assist the Franchise Tax Board, Board of Equalization and Employment Development Department.
